Easiest way to convert int to string in C

0 votes

In C++, what is the simplest way to convert an int to an equivalent string? 

I'm aware of two approaches. 

Is there any other option?

(1)

int a = 10;
char *intStr = itoa(a);
string str = string(intStr);

(2)

int a = 10;
stringstream ss;
ss << a;
string str = ss.str();

std::stoi (and variations for each numeric type) and std::to string, the C++11 equivalents of atoi and itoa, but stated in terms of std::string, are introduced.

#include <string> 

std::string s = std::to_string(42);

As a result, this is the quickest route I can think of. 

You may even use the auto keyword to avoid identifying the type.

auto s = std::to_string(42);

What is the best way to use a HashMap in C++?

The ordered and unordered map containers (std::map and std::unordered map) are included in the standard library.  The items in an ordered map are sorted by key, and insert and access are in O (log n).  For ordered maps, the standard library often use red black trees.  However, this is only an implementation detail.  Insert and access are in O in an unordered map (1).  It is simply another term for a hashtable.
